Enhance your existing smart home with the Philips Hue smart dimmer switch with remote on sale for $19.97. This is the lowest price on this dimmer switch that we have seen since December of last year. For most of 2020, this dimmer switch has sold for around its $25 street price. If it did drop in price, it only went as low as $23. This is a much more significant drop and within 50 cents of its lowest ever.

The switch can control your smart bulbs without using the Hue app. Use the remote to control the switch from a distance or use the app to configure scenes and set schedules. Controls up to 10 lights. Requires a Philips Hue Hub.

The Smart Dimmer Switch gives you a lot of control that you wouldn't normally have. I mean, what's a regular light switch going to do, just turn things on and off? That's so lame. Get one of these switches and not only can you turn things on and off, you can do it from a distance. You can do it with the included remote! You could even use your voice!

Use the middle buttons on the switch to adjust the intensity of your Philips Hue smart bulbs. You'll be able to switch between four light recipes without even pulling up the app. Configure your four favorite scenes in the ecosystem so you actually have something a little personal to switch between.

If you use the dimmer switch without a Philips Hue Hub, you can connect it to up to 10 smart bulbs. If you use the hub, you can go up to 50. You'll definitely want to look into the Hub if you can afford it because it also gives you some other neat features. Not only will you be able to add all kinds of products like light strips and stuff, you'll be able to connect the whole system to your smart home's ecosystem. Use your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant voice assistant to control the smart bulbs with your voice.

The switch is battery-powered so it can literally be installed anywhere in your home with the included screws or adhesive tape. And once installed, it can be setup in just a minute using the app.
